Sunshine Yellow 2015 XV Special Edition revealed

Subaru has revealed its Sunshine Yellow 2015 XV special Edition variant which joins the refreshed 2015 XV range and is limited to just 200 units.

COINCIDING WITH THE recent launch of the refreshed 2015 Subaru XV, Subaru has released this Sunshine Yellow Special Edition variant which attracts a price premium of $1750 on the entry-level XV (totalling $30,740+ORC). 

The 2.0i CVT-based Special Edition gets black interior, heated leather trim front seats and leather trim shift and steering wheel. It also features embroidered carpet mats with orange stitching to match the unique seat, steering wheel and armrest stitching.

Subaru Managing Director, Nick Senior, said: “Unique colours have been an inherent part of the XV range since launch.

“A much-copied orange, a vibrant green and now a stand-out yellow. These colours have not only proven to be popular with our younger XV buyers, they have broad appeal.

“And with a limited run of only 200 vehicles the long term value of this particular XV is likely to be very, very strong.

“It is competitively priced and comprehensively equipped with the inclusion of leather trim interior and heated seats over the entry level. We don’t envisage these will last long.”

Sunshine Yellow 2015 XV Special Edition highlights:

•Leather appointed seats;

•Heated front seats;

•Leather shift;

•Leather steering wheel;

•Special Edition coded stitching on seats, steering wheel and armrest;

•Embroidered carpet mats; and

•Carbon fibre look interior trim panel.

      To some degree. See our XV long term test and Outback review for a similar vehicle.
